It sounds like the greatest deal in the world - play virtually every minute of every game, take twice as many shots as anybody else, serve as a role model for the guys following in your footsteps. You could even say it perfectly fulfills the fantasies Dylon Cormier harbored as a basketball-mad kid growing up in Pasadena and Randallstown. He wanted to be Allen Iverson. And at least in the context of Loyola basketball, he kind of is. Here's the thing, though. Now that he's living his dream, Cormier will tell you it's awfully hard work being the singular, no-doubt-about-it top dog on a basketball team.

The Navy men's basketball team is eager to end a three-game losing streak, but the Midshipmen's next opponent is enduring an even longer skid. Loyola (5-6) has dropped its last four games and six of its last seven.

There was little mystery in the recruitment of Chancellor Barnard . The Glenelg Country School guard knew exactly where he wanted to go to college - Loyola - and the coaching staff there wanted him, too. But with the Greyhounds' move from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference to the Patriot League, Loyola's academic standards became stricter. So even though Barnard had easily reached the NCAA minimum qualifying benchmarks, he needed a higher standardized test score to be admitted to his top school.

Jimmy Patsos got what he wanted after all. "Three games in March," he said Sunday after Loyola beat Manhattan, 63-61, at Reitz Arena. Three games to win the upcoming Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championships and get the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row. All he wanted was a shot at it. He doesn't ask for the sky, the moon and the stars above. But now Loyola, the little Catholic school at the corner of Charles St. and Cold Spring Lane, gets a chance to win three games in March and go to the Big Dance.

Loyola shot 7-for-17 from the free-throw line in the second half, and 12-for-26 in the game, and host Marist took advantage to pull away for a 69-64 victory Sunday afternoon. In the second half, the Greyhounds missed both of two free throws twice, 1-of-2 three times, the front end of 1-and-1 twice and once after making a basket. Marist conversely, made 25 of 37 free throws in the game and 18 of 25 after halftime. "Anytime you go 12-of-26 from the free-throw line on the road, you're not going to be successful," Loyola coach Jimmy Patsos said.
